Two of the most remarkable tickets at Cannes this year are US documentaries exploring international political anxieties: Charles Ferguson's Inside Job, and Lucy Walker's Countdown to Zero.
After several coolly received competition entries, two of the hottest tickets at Cannes this year were US documentaries shown in the special screening's category last Sunday and Monday evenings. Charles Ferguson's Inside Job, which examines the global financial crisis, and Lucy Walker's Countdown to Zero, about the threat of nuclear weapons, tapped into political anxieties that permeate even the world's glitziest cultural event.
